How to add a TAB char to the end of a barcode in Centura 5.2

How to add a TAB char to the end of a barcode in Centura 5.2

I am starting to add barcodes to some centura documents i.e. packlists, and want to add a TAB char to the barcode value so when the user scans the barcode in the PACKLIST_ID field the value will populate and then tab out and refresh the data. Right now I have this '*' || CO_PACKLIST_ID || '*' I am using Code39FiveText format and can't seem to get the report builder to accept any additional characters. Anyone solved this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I dont know the answer, as never used barcodes so suggest you post the question on the
Team Developer SQLWindows Community Forum here: Link where you will get many more experts ideas.
